Kraft. eat your heart out.  This is pretty basic, but also a lot healthier then your average box of mac n cheese.


1/4 c. barley uncooked
1/2 white onion, chopped or sliced
1/2 tomato, diced
1 oz sharp cheddar, shredded
1 oz fresh parmesan, shredded
dash of the following [to flavor]

#1 bring at least 1 c of water to boil, add barley and cook until tender [up to 30m.] but not until fully cooked.
#2 add onion and tomato, reduce heat, cook for another 15 min.
#3 drain any additional water in pan.
#4 add spices and cheese.
#5 stir and serve.

Feed the body.

Its time to get back on the health track.  Popsicles, ice cream, frozen yogurt, you name it-all these summer treats are my biggest weakness.  So to make up for it, in some degree I made steamed veggies [broccoli, pumpkin, onions, and mushrooms] and black beans with fresh Parmesan cheese & ground pepper! Simple, fast, healthy- and yes it was yummy.

So my mom and brother got a little time out on the courts during their stay with me.  And since I'm rackettless myself, I kept myself occupied with my camera.

and of course the old russian men playing cards in the park! (welcome to plummer park)

and the little squirrel found dancing in the tree..

Summer, by far, is my absolutely favorite season.  I love the heat. Especially, when your living in California.  You get all the sun and all the hot weather without that dreadful humidity.  When you have frizzy hair like me, if you spend an hour straitening your hair just trying to make it look pretty, its nice to be able to step outside and not grow a frizz fro!  Sadly August will be coming to an end before we know it, and so will the hot weather.
